Life after suffering significant tooth loss can be full of inconveniences you can grow understandably frustrated with. Your diet can suffer maddening limitations, and you can resent the way your appearance has been altered. With traditional dentures, you can feel better about the way you look, but the relatively instability of your appliance can mean putting up with embarrassing slippages, and little support for your biting and chewing. Fortunately, your Katy, TX dentist’s office can offer better support for a prosthetic with All-On-4 implants! A series of four implants set in your jaw can hold your denture, so that you feel more comfortable with it, and more confident as you bite, chew, and speak.
Using All-On-4 Implants To Hold A Dental Arch
While individual dental prostheses can be held with their own dental implants, you do not need an implant for every tooth being restored via a denture. Instead, your dentist will work out a plan to hold the restoration with a set of four implants. Once they are put in place, they can be counted on to give you a remarkable amount of support for your denture.
What Do Dental Implants Do For Your Oral Health?
Dental implants offer more than just daily convenience. When you bite, chew, and speak, the impact on teeth stimulate your jawbone. In turn, that stimulation tells your body to send nutrients to the jaw, to keep it healthy enough to support your teeth. With missing roots, your jawbone is losing stimulation, and losing mass. Implants, like the roots of natural teeth, stimulate the bone. That can protect this structure, and even help you avoid developing a “sunken” look that can result because of bone loss.
Putting Off On Prosthetic Work Can Lead To Problems For Your Jaw
Restoring your complete smile can give you back your confidence in your appearance, and make your daily life easier. What you should know is that if you continue to put off treatment, it can become harder for you to receive important care without some delays. If your jawbone has already started to deteriorate, it may be ill-prepared to receive dental implants. As a result, you may have to wait longer for your smile improvements as you have work done to restore your jawbone.
